Charming period residence with self contained Mews on c. 1 acre.

Warren Estates are delighted to present ‘The Game Keepers Lodge’, a beautifully restored period residence full of charm and character of yesteryear. It stands on a mature walled c. 1 acre site and comes complete with an attractive granite faced Mews. Built by The Earl of Fitzwilliam in the 1800’s ‘The Game Keepers Lodge’ was occupied by staff working on the Coolattin Estate. It enjoys an idyllic situation nestled in the woodlands of the Coolattin Estate and literally across the road from one of Irelands most picturesque parkland courses at Coolattin Golf Club. A wonderful sporting amenity to have on your doorstep!

‘The Game Keepers Lodge’ stands testament to the opulence of the time in which it was built.

Today, a listed building ‘The Game Keepers Lodge’ is quaint and managable with many attractive and interesting period features including, granite heads and window sills, decorative plasterwork, ceiling coving and centrepieces, window shutters and the stylish Victorian facade to the outside completes the look. This fine property was extensively renovated in 2013 to exacting standards and was sympathetically restored to it’s former glory. The property sports an attractive 2 bed Mews which was once known as the butty where the beaters gathered after the shoot, for soup and a butty sandwich! The Mews is now a comfortable two bed with an open plan living/kitchen area and has been tastefully modernised throughout. This is separate from the main house with independent entrance and parking.

This is the ultimate country residence ideal for those in pursuit of nature, golf, woodland walks and tranquility away from the bustle of city life. This unique property has it all!

‘The Game Keepers Lodge’ is well located within a few minute’s drive of Tomnafinogue Wood (one of Ireland’s last remaining oak woodlands) and only 1.6km from picturesque Shillelagh Village. It is also within easy reach of Tinahely, Aughrim and Carnew and about an hour’s drive south of Dublin.

Co. Wicklow is renowned as The Garden of Ireland and boasts many areas of great scenic beauty with the former Coolattin Estate ranking highly among them. There are a host of leisure pursuits catered for in the area including horse riding, hunting, shooting and hill walking while Coolattin is only half an hour’s drive to the sea.
